Hi Deborah - our kids are all due in April. Each of our does came in heat one week apart so that will be an interesting month. We were lucky - every Saturday in November we visisted a differant local farm where we had lined up a stud so they all will have differant sires. It just so happens that all of the sires were white (what are those odds) so all of the colors may be a surprise.
Sorry Deborah, haven't been checking my email lately. Just found the email about the book quote. Of course, I would't mind dear. In fact, I am very honored. Just remember, I am no grammar whiz, just a redneck, so make sure it's all RIGHT ok! Any time!
I have been getting endless amount of emails from this forum, everytime someone posts I get an email. I enjoy seeing who is posting and all but it is just blowing up my email, how do I get this to stop?
Deborah, just wanted to let you know that I have contacted a few breeders about the possibility of a buckling purchase. I am waiting to see what hits the ground in January and I will go from there and see if there's anything that will work for me. So let me know what you get if they are not spoken for already. Thanks, Amy
I have been so busy since launched my business and didn't notice that I hadn't received any emails from the site. I had logged on to update my information and update my user name etc. I answered some entries and saw them in my email later, but I remember being able to view every entry on the forum. I really miss seeing everything.
Has the forum changed or did I click something to stop the emails? Even if I don't post, I still need to read all the comments and entries.

Thanks Deb. We have even looked into a small commercial type of meat grinder, but oh they are so pricey and can't justify using one for the amount of meat we may want to grind. So glad to hear you are happy with the KitchenAid attachment. I think I know what I might ask for at Christmas time. :)
Deb, was reading your blog about your turkeys. Noticed in the picture you have KitchenAid meat grinder attachment. How do you like it? We have been pondering a meat grinder for sometime now. We have a KitchenAid also. Any pros or cons to using this attachment?
Deborah, I am asking you this specifically because I know you use the Burdizzo method to wether. I bought the Side Crusher from Premier 1 and used it on my 7-week-old buckling.He is now 12 weeks old and I am wondering if it worked (there is a slight gap on one end of it, about 1/5 centimeter wide, but no gap on the other end). He no longer smells or acts bucky, but it stills feels like the cords are intact. I doesn't look like his testicles have grown with him, but I could be wrong. He is due to move to his new home in 2-3 weeks, thus my concern. I want to make sure he is a wether before he leaves. Should I redo just in case or does it typically feel like the cords are still connected even five weeks later?
We took Cisco Kid to our first show this weekend. He did wonderful, acted as if he was a pro! He came away with two reserve grand champions! Thank you for your help with finding our first buck! We are enjoying him every day!
